  • I’m posting a list of episodes that appear to be missing from this year to aid people who might have some of these to post. I used the episode guide at thetvdb to compare against what’s here. Quite a few big-name movies are missing from this year. Also note that the “Radio Days” episode does not show up on this page for some reason, but there is an entry for it on this web site that actually just links to its YouTube review:
    S01E20 Black Widow/From the Hip/Light of Day/Dead of Winter (2/7/1987)
    S01E22 Tin Men/Some Kind of Wonderful/Angel Heart/A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors (2/28/1987)
    S01E24 Heat/Lethal Weapon/Lily Tomlin/Raising Arizona (3/14/1987)
    S01E25 Burglar/Hollywood Shuffle/Street Smart/Beyond Therapy (3/21/1987)
    S01E26 Blind Date/Dolls/The Hanoi Hilton/Swimming to Cambodia (3/28/1987)
    S01E27 Making Mr. Right/Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn/Secret of My Success/Prick Up Your Ears (4/11/1987)

    S02E04 Surrender/Someone to Watch Over Me/Dancers/House of Games/Maurice (10/10/1987)

    S02E10 Planes, Trains and Automobiles/Cinderella/Three Men and a Baby/Date with an Angel/Teen Wolf Too (11/18/1987)

  • I noticed a user named Jesse commented on another section of this site that most of the missing 1987 “Lethal Weapon” episode is posted on YouTube in multiple parts. Search for these posted by Vhs Vcr:
    Siskel and Ebert review Heat starring Burt Reynolds (1987)
    Siskel and Ebert review Lethal Weapon At The Movies (1987)
    Lily Tomlin Documentary One Woman Show (1987) At The Movies Siskel & Ebert
    Home Video Recommendations for the Week (1987) Siskel and Ebert

    • And the same guy has a second account called VCR VHS where he posted the Raising Arizona review:
      Siskel and Ebert review Raising Arizona At The Movies (1987)

  • Some of the missing reviews are on the Official Roger Ebert youtube channel, though they’re cut up into individual reviews rather than whole episodes. For example it has all five of the reviews from “S02E02 The Princess Bride/China Girl/The Big Town/The Pick-Up Artist/I’ve Heard the Mermaids Sing.” Does that channel not approve of them being linked here?
